Because of the large number of poorly written posts and repetitive questions asked by new members, I have changed the permissions settings for Porcupines
Porcupines may not start
new topics on any of the boards, including the General Discussion board, although they can reply
to existing topics. After new members have posted
10 reply messages, they will move up the ranks to Grapehead, at which point they can start a topic as well as reply to others.
It's my hope that this will get new members to start looking around the message boards more, and perhaps seeing that their question was already answered. (There's only so many times that I can tell people that the "Niagara Falls" bit was in Gents Without Cents
before I'll start going crazy myself.)(NOTE: My apologises if some of you get the announcement of this thread more than once, but the original announcement sent earlier today was inadvertently stopped, and only some of the e-mails actually went out.)
